Pittsburgh is a city at the junction of three rivers. Its Gilded Age sites, including the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, the Carnegie Museum of Art, and the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, speak to its history as an early-20th-century industrial capital. In the North Shore neighborhood are the modern Andy Warhol Museum, Heinz Field football stadium, and PNC Park baseball stadium. At the Heinz History Center, travel to Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood to see iconic artifacts up-close from the beloved children’s television show that was filmed right here in Pittsburgh. And don’t miss the “Inclines”—also known as Funiculars Railways, which are designed to transport people and cargo up and down steep slopes.
For those up for a short drive, Fallingwater, the iconic house designed by the architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935 in the Laurel Highlands of southwest Pennsylvania, is about 70 miles (110 km) southeast of Pittsburgh. Fallingwater stands as one of Wright’s greatest masterpieces both for its dynamism and for its integration with its striking natural surroundings.
And finally, enjoy your stay at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh, housed in a striking 1903 building in the Central Business District across from Mellon Square Park, located in downtown Pittsburgh, just steps from the Cultural District.
